Barriers to accessibility for those depending on using a wheelchair might not be obvious to the able-bodied observer. A patch of deep gravel left as a temporary measure by maintenance workers might be easily walked over by anyone walking, but that same patch of gravel would bog down a wheelchair.

The same patch can be an issue for baby strollers and carriages; elderly and their walkers or canes; as well as mobility scooters and wheelchairs. Luckily most times such patches are temporary, but there are similar sorts of barriers that pop up from time to time and some aren’t cleared up quickly.

Keep an eye out for barriers to both the able and disabled members of society.


This strip* was published before as “Wheel Tales of We’ll Make Cents” but we thought it would be better to publish more independently — hence the change in venue and name to “Wheel Tales of Willow City”.

We'll Make CentsWe’ll Make Cents” is an organization that helps support a number of not-for-profit causes which might get overlooked. Why not pop over and give them a visit and check out their current project.

Donations are actually hard to come by for Charities and other not-for-profit organizations. Consider what you might be able to donate. It might be a good time to clean that closet, attic, cellar, shed, or garage! You might have someone else’s next treasured possession. Perhaps you don’t live near Auckland and We’ll Make Cents, but there are people in need everywhere!

Hello Mrs Little!

Hello Mrs Little!

Hello Willy! Do you have a few minutes to give me a hand?

Sure I have some time for you.

What can I do for you?

Can you come in and help me out, reading my telephone bill?

Why do you need help with that? You have good eyes.

They've put my bill on the Internet and I don't know how to use it.

I'm sure I can help you with that...

...and I'll try teach you about the Internet too.

That would be great! Everyone is going onto the Net and they just assume we know.

It seems that many people and organizations are making assumptions about people and technology. They assume that “everyone” has a Cell phone or a Fax machine or a computer and the Internet.

Not everyone has access to every gadget. It isn’t just people who despise change or technology — many people don’t normally have a need for some things. For example not everyone feels a need to be on the Internet and don’t want the added expense. For another example not everyone has a need for a Cell phone — their normal land-line works just fine in their lives.

The only time they miss some forms of technology is when someone makes another assumption that “everybody” has it.
